My connection goes dormant often and needs to be waken up occasionaly, sending ping is the best method. does anyone know a good free progarm which can send a ping on demand?

Thanks

Start, Run type Ping


or open a command prompt window and do a tracert to a website ie

tracert www.xtra.co.nz

dont need a program to do that

Simply set your e-mail program to check for mail every 10 minutes or so, that will keep a connection alive.
